Black, African American, or…NEGRO?!?!

I know many of you have checked out this year’s Census report and thought like everyone else, “REALLY?! Negro? in 2010?!” Many of you probably wanted to call up Obama and see what the heck is going on up there. But rest assured, just like everything else, it’s OUR FAULT. Check out this news brief from CBS News:

Here’s the most troublesome quote from that text:

In a press release Friday, the Census Bureau noted that “In the 2000 Census, more than 50,000 persons chose to write down explicitly that they identified themselves as ‘Negro.’

How many people are in America? And more specifically, how many African Americans are in America? 50,000 put Negro, and you add it to the Census?! Let’s have some decency! What if 50,000 put “hood nigga” or “porch monkey” or “south side ryda”… are you going to add that to the Census? I’m trying not to say it but COME ON SON! That’s not even thinking.

Anyways, I just thought you all should know why they did what they did. Apparently it’s your fault…negro.
